Integrated routing and scheduling of hazmat trucks with stops en route
(Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS), 2007)
We consider an integrated routing and scheduling problem in hazardous materials transportation where accident rates, population exposure, and link durations on the network vary with time of day. We minimize risk (accident ...
Designing emergency response networks for hazardous materials transportation
Undesirable consequences of dangerous goods incidents can be mitigated by quick arrival of specialized response teams at the accident site. We present a novel methodology to determine the optimal design of a specialized ...
Designing a road network for hazardous materials shipments
We consider the problem of designating hazardous materials routes in and through a major population center. Initially, we restrict our attention to a minimally connected network (a tree) where we can predict accurately the ...
